Chase by Dana Rogers Photography

Once upon a time, there was a little guy who needed a home. He was waiting over at The Humane Society of Boulder Valley for just the right someone.

Chase by Dana Rogers Photography

He just had his surgery the day before, but he was up on the web site so things were looking good. Moe spotted him online – she had been looking for just the right little personality to get along with Spencer, another pup she adopted earlier this year.

It must have been love at first sight. They saw eye to eye. Okay, enough worn out phrases. A photo is worth a thousand words, right?

He was just a few handfuls but has a ton of personality. There wasn’t a collar small enough, but he’ll be growing. A bit. He is probably a fox terrier mix of some sort.

“Hey, who are you?” he said to Spencer.

Chase by Dana Rogers Photography

At first Spencer wasn’t all that interested. He figured there would be plenty of time. This was there first day together.

The little one was happy in Moe’s arms. We tossed around a few names, but nothing seemed quite right.

Chase by Dana Rogers Photography

Curious and energetic. Small and white. Male. What’s a good name?

Chase by Dana Rogers Photography

Did I say curious?

Chase by Dana Rogers Photography

“Hey. Don’t push me, Moe. This big brown guy might be mean!” (Spencer is a dachshund mix. Not a big guy, but when you are that small everybody seems huge.)

Chase by Dana Rogers Photography

Spencer had to set down some guidelines about “who was here first.” Oh what big teeth you have.

Chase by Dana Rogers Photography

But with a touch of the nose, the friendship was sealed.

Chase by Dana Rogers Photography

There’s plenty of love for everyone.

And now a new someone for playing.

“Is he gonna like all of my toys?”

Probably.

Moe did a little reassuring for Spencer.

The little guy let his hair down.

Chase by Dana Rogers Photography

Took another look around.

Then, he said “I think I will stay.”

“And by the way, my name is Chase.”

emma reuss’ headshot makeover

Emma was our youngest makeover winner. Her goal was singular; she wanted to look older. We admit, we don’t hear that very often. However, Emma is launching her new career coaching business where she does most of her business over the phone. She needed a photo to communicate her poise and maturity. And this wasn’t it.

 Here’s where we took Emma.

Joshua, a massage therapist and bodywork practitioner, requested a photo to aid in promoting his business. He was interested in communicating his gentle nature, but also his healing energy. Did we succeed?
